Today’s video completes the first stage of my All-Analogue Synth Setup thingie The setup was mostly unchanged from the last round – the aux chains had been separated into one with three delays (fed by the Volca Kick) and one with one delay (fed by the Minibrute/A100 combo). At a tempo of 105bpm, it’s a […]Read more "“Wenig” – State One of the All-Analogue Prototype Completed"
Along the same realms as in the last post, this one had actual video recording. The audio got a little too hot for my tastes (note to self: never expect it works “just like last week” for an all-analogue, preset-free setup). There’s a more complex beat from the Volca Kick (if only so much more), […]Read more "All-Analogue Synth Setup Continued"
In my recent review of the Behringer VD400 analogue delay, I already mentioned the Ibanez ES2 Echo Shifter. At slightly below 130 bucks, it’s the cheapest one-second analogue delay in the market today. By a margin. I decided to get it. Appearance, Package, Connections The ES2 comes together with a small kinda-manual (multi-language folded paper) […]Read more "Review: Ibanez ES2 Echo Shifter"
I’ve been talking about it for a long time – this is the first proper action: I recorded a synth track using an all-analogue signal chain.Read more "POC: The All-Analogue Signal Chain"
Ever since I got this album, it had been constantly on my (not properly kept) List of Greatest Albums of All Time. And it has been the only one to accomplish that feat. Time to review it – decades later. And if you don’t want to read on: just get the album! Introduction Back in […]Read more "Review: Steve Coleman “Curves of Life”"
So I wanted to make a synth velocity-sensitive. More specifically, an analogue synth, and retain a fully analogue audio signal chain (because I have a project in mind for which that is important). In my setup there’s two analogue synths which I had in mind for that project: the Arturia MiniBrute, and the Korg Volca […]Read more "Making a Synth velocity-sensitive"
How stupid is it to name the sixth main installment in a (video game) series just like the series as a whole? Independently of the answer to this pressing question, I’m reviewing Hitman (the 2016 video game), not the series. Overview Hitman is built like the preceding games and also shares a similar story. Timeline-wise, […]Read more "Review: Hitman"
